Dave, that would REALLY surprise me that your routers are THAT old. 
Almost all routers now support IGMP V3 these days and that's what's 
required for modern multicasting. In addition, I would expect most IPv6 
packets not to get routed if the routers were really that old since the 
routers wouldn't know what to do with the packets.
